Other objects and advantages will be apparent from the following description and with particular reference to the accompanying drawings. a
In the drawings: Figure 1 is a perspective View of a rope formed into a slip noose showing my invention attached thereto, Fig. 2 is an enlarged side elevation of the clip, Fig. 3'is an end view, and Fig. t is a top plan view.
Referring particularly to the drawings, 10 represents the rope of a halter, one end of which is formed into a loop 11, to the end 12 of said rope my grip is adapted to be secured. The clip is formed of a single piece of wire, and consists of a shank portion 13, which extends longitudinally of one portion of the loop and has its end passed around the rope as indicated at 14. The
Copies of this patent may be obtained for opposite end of the shank is turned at right angles transversely of the rope. and then into a loop or eye 15, which eye is disposed in a plane at right angles to the rope. The
opposite end of the eye 15 is bent over the shank, and then passed once around the rope, as indicated at 17. Thus the clip comprises a pair of eyes or loops which embrace the end of the rope at spaced intervals and the vertically extending eye or loop 16.
